Aggieville Zoning

Posted to How Do UDO by Ben Chmiel

Zoning determines what can be built in Aggieville; what kinds of uses, businesses, and buildings, how tall those buildings are and what they might look like. Aggieville's zoning (Currently the C-3 district) was last updated in Spring 2017 after the adoption of the Aggieville Community Vision (ACV) plan. Those updates restricted automobile-oriented uses and limited on-site parking. Through the UDO process, the City will be adapting and updating Aggieville's zoning (soon to be called the C-A district) and initiating the next round of changes for Aggieville zoning, as described in the ACV plan. Changes will include targeted building height increases, building design, setbacks and parking requirements. Check out this video describing the proposed changes in more detail and how they relate to the plan...
